An Evolved Approach to Advertising


We believe in stories that go deeper, resources you can use, and introductions to the best business minds in the region. We believe most business publications, because of revenue and cost-savings pressures, lose sight of the reason they exist: to provide relevant content to readers. For this reason, we commit to never run more than 30 percent advertising content—about half of all other local publications—ensuring readers get what they came for and our advertising partners stand out.

You won’t find handfuls of business-card-sized ads in our book. We only sell full pages or larger, because they have the highest rate of recall among readers—isn’t that the point? We are the first in the U.S. to offer category exclusive partnerships—something that’s garnered national attention. We believe in the value of what we can offer in print, digital, social media, and events. In the end, however, it’s not just about what we believe. We’ll let our 90 percent retention rate speak for itself.
